Community Volunteers programme

Working in partnership with commissioners and providers, VANS has launched a coordinated volunteer initiative to help broker individuals to meet demand in health and social care roles and within other statutory service provision throughout the COVID-19 outbreak.

If you are an individual who would like to register to volunteer then click on the following link here and complete the registration form or download the word.doc and email it back to us - info@vansmail.org.uk

If you are a service provider with identified need for support from volunteers, contact the VANS team on 01934 416486 or email info@vansmail.org.uk and let us know what additional support you require, what, if any experience they should have and whether they need to have a current DBS certification.
